Ship Facts: Carnival Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Spirit Deck Plans
Carnival UNspirited.
EMBARKATION.

* Well organised but should have rung alarm bells when we saw so many kids !!!!!

* Luggage was prompt delivery.

* Departure was very late. They should know how long it takes to load the ship.

CABINS.

* Just ordinary. Poor toiletries. Plenty of storage space.

* Cabin attendant was not the friendliest of people, not up to standard of previous cruise liners.

LIBRARY.

* Absolutely pathetic. Attended by the show staff (Dancers, etc.) Not computerised and books are hidden by computer terminals in front of book cases.

COMMUNICATION.

* Very poor.

* Still haven't seen the Captain and only heard him once give a ship's update.

* We had no idea where we were.

* Ship's navigation map was pathetic.

KIDS.

* Ran amok, yelling and shouting and generally disturbing what little peace could be found.

* No supervision by either ships staff or (in many cases) parents.

CASINO.

* How can kids be allowed in the Casino??? and right at the tables.

* Is this not against the law?????

SECURITY STAFF.

* Conspicuous by their absence. They had it easy on this cruise.

* Why weren't they out controlling the kids????

DECK CHAIRS.

* No deck chairs on the promenade deck.

FOOD. (WHAT?????)

* The Nouveau was very good and staff excellent.

* Very poor in all other venues.

DRINKS AND BEVERAGES.

* Coffee was poor and served in PAPER!!!!!!CUPS at coffee shops.

* Alcoholic beverages were average cruise prices.

ENTERTAINMENT AND PRODUCTION SHOWS.

* Entertainment was very poor when compared to other cruises.

* Comedy Club was smutty.

ACTIVITIES.

* Nothing suitable. Mostly only Trivia. Not what we are used to.

* No guest speakers.

TENDERS AND ISLAND LANDING.

* Tendering was very good.

* Ship's arrival and departure times should be extended to allow more time ashore.

ON BOARD SHOPS.

* Clinique prices very good. (Wife Happy).

PHOTOS.

* Excellent. Best setup of any cruise we have been on.

CRUISE DIRECTOR (WHAT??????).

* Completely useless.

DISEMBARKATION PROCEDURE

* Excellent. Quickest we have ever gotten off a ship.

CRUISE REVIEW FORMS.

* None to be had. Are Carnival afraid of bad feedback?????
